Description:
The Cabildo, maintained by the Louisiana State Museum, was the site for signing of the Louisiana Purchase. It was infested by the Formosan subterranean termite as is the rest of the French Quarter (Vieux Carre') where the museum is located. This building was one of the first to be treated using the technologically advanced monitoring and baiting. After several months of baiting there have been no further signs of the termite in the building.
